These Bedroom Colors Are Your Gateway to a Better Night's Sleep

Gabrielle Savoie

Many variables contribute to our quality of sleep, like stress-levels and whether or not we exercise. A less obvious factor is what bedroom colors we choose to design or paint with. When selecting paint colors for bedrooms, the first thing to consider is temperature. While warm colors advance toward the eye and appear more active, creating a stimulating effect, cool colors—the hues from blue green through blue violet, most grays included—tend to recede, producing a more calming and relaxing effect.

That said, there's a lot of variation on the cool color spectrum; a bright green and a pale blue can create spaces with drastically different vibes. If cool colors aren't your cup of tea, warm hues that are light and subtle, such as soft yellows or pinks, can also feel soothing. We turned to a few of our favorite interior designers to hear how they go about selecting paint colors for bedrooms. Don't pick up a paintbrush without reading these expert tips first—we bet you'll love your new bedroom color.
